Chicken Burritos

Submitted by: MOMMAGRAMMY

Introduction

We think this is as good as restaurant burritos! The sodium level is probably too high for those watching their salt intake but this is very filling for the calories involved!

Ingredients

    24 oz. chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
    4 cups water
    2 large bay leaves
    2 10oz cans Rotel tomatoes & green chiles
    1 103/4 oz can 98% fat free Cream of Chicken soup
    3 tsp. taco seasoning
    2 tsp. cayenne pepper seasoning
    1 large clove of garlic, minced
    6 flour tortillas, whole wheat
    2 c. reduced fat mexican style shredded cheese
    2 c. shredded lettuce, romaine
    1 large tomato, diced

Directions

Using a non-stick skillet, saute chicken over medium heat till lightly browned on both sides. (If you use a regular skillet, lightly spray pan with olive oil cooking spray.)
Add water and bay leaves, bring to boil over medium-high heat, lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until just cooked through. Remove chicken, cool, reserving broth. Cut chicken length-wise into thin strips.
Meanwhile, in saucepan over medium heat, combine Rotel tomatoes, cream of chicken soup, taco seasoning, garlic, cayenne and 1/2 cup of reserved broth. Bring to gentle boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
Divide chicken into tortillas, rolling up and placing seam-side down in 8X11 baking dish. Pour sauce over tortillas and sprinkle cheese in a row across the middle of all the tortillas. Bake for 30 minutes or until cheese melts.
Right before serving, sprinkle lettuce over cheese and top with tomatoes.
Serves 6.

    This was absolutely delicious! My husband and I both thought it tasted better than our "former" favorite restaurant down the street! Yummy! Goes great with my recipe for Spicy Smooshed Black Beans! - 4/28/09

  • If you want to reduce the sodium in this recipe, try removing the taco seasoning & using Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle seasoning instead. And if you are missing that thickness that usually comes with the taco seasoning, try adding a little cornstarch! Overall, sounds like a great recipe though! - 4/17/11

  • Delicious! My family loved this recipe. I did cut back on the cayenne pepper by half so that it wasn't so spicy. I will definitely make this recipe several times! - 6/7/09

  • I mixed the sauce in with the chicken and put it all in a tortilla...a little messy but very good! I'm going to use some of the leftover filling to top a baked potato. - 5/19/09
